CINEMA POLITICA FREDERICTON PRESENTS: LIFE IS WAITING
Cinema Politica Fredericton presents "Life is Waiting: Referendum and Resistance in Western Sahara" (Iara Lee, 2015, 59')
Friday, Sept. 30 at 7:00pm Conserver House, 180 Saint John St., Fredericton.
Forty years after its people were promised freedom by departing Spanish rulers, the Western Sahara remains Africa’s last colony. While a UN-brokered ceasefire put an end to armed hostilities in the territory in 1991, the Sahrawi people have continued to live under the Moroccan armed forces' oppressive occupation, and what peace exists in the area is fragile at best. Tens of thousands have fled to neighboring Algeria, where over 125,000 refugees still live in camps that were intended to be temporary. In spite of these difficulties, a new movement, with youth at its center, is rising to challenge human rights abuses and to demand the long-promised referendum on freedom.
This film is presented by special permission from the director. Everyone welcome. Films are free but donations welcome. Join us for a post-film discussion with Dr. Samira Farhoud.
Please note: the screening room is wheelchair accessible but the washrooms are up the stairs.
